Fast, efficient underground mine scanning for all Australian sites is made possible by the uGPS Rapid Mapper™.
As they seek to consistently improve efficiency, productivity, and safety, underground mines in Australia will also need to place an increasing focus on the rapid, efficient gathering of accurate data that can be used for monitoring, planning, and decision-making purposes.
Technological advances in the last few years have made it possible for underground mine scanning to be performed using more advanced equipment and techniques than were previously available. This is not always a simple matter, though. Underground mining environments can be challenging places at the best of times, especially for high-tech electronic devices that are sensitive to heat, dust, moisture, and vibration. Any device used to perform underground mine scanning tasks must be able to withstand harsh conditions and perform at its best under challenging circumstances.
The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ is a portable, rugged, simple to-use 3D mine scanner that generates 3D point cloud data quickly, accurately, and on the move, making it the ideal choice for underground mine scanning in Australia. This scanner is simple to install (it can be attached to just about any existing mine vehicle or conveyance), and so easy to use that regular mine personnel will be ready to use it within a short space of time and with minimal training.
The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ makes it easy to rapidly and accurately construct digital 3D maps of any area of the mine from the 3D point cloud data it generates. This information can be used for a variety of underground mine scanning tasks, including:
- Deformation and convergence monitoring
- Accurately measuring stockpiles
- Calculation of blast volumes, extraction or fill rates, and volumes
- Yield and productivity monitoring
